A DEVIL’S BARGAIN
Easily the shyest Wallflower, Evangeline Jenner stands to become the wealthiest, once her inheritance comes due. Because she must first escape the clutches of her unscrupulous relatives, Evie has approached the rake Viscount St. Vincent with a most outrageous proposition: marriage!
Sebastian’s reputation is so dangerous that 30 seconds alone with him will ruin any maiden’s good name. Still, this bewitching chit appeared, unchaperoned, on his doorstep to offer her hand. Certainly an aristocrat with a fine eye for beauty could do far worse.
But Evie’s proposal comes with a condition: no lovemaking after their wedding night. She will never become just another of the dashing libertine’s callously discarded broken hearts —
which means Sebastian will simply have to work harder at his seductions…or perhaps surrender his own heart for the very first time in the name of true love.

I like this story a great deal. But I truly can't stand the American accent of Lilly and Daisy. I had to stop the last book bc of it. The narrator is great, but I can't stand her American accents. I don't actually like the sisters at all. They're abrasive to the point of anoyance.
But Evie and St Vincent have a nice story.
I love books and this book I do not love. The story sounded promising but the more I heard, the more disappointed I became. I've read stories when the heroine turns to Jello with just a brush of a kiss, well this heroine became a caricature of herself, and the hero is ridiculous. All posturing and nonsense words were spoken with the stuffiest attitude that I wondered if the narrator was trying to insert some semblance of a story. I felt that the author lost her way after chapter 3. I held on 3/4's of the way through. Couldn't handle anymore. This is the first book I turned off before finishing.
